Apparently, more than one team wants the services of the probable #1 pick in the 2010 NFL draft, Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford.
Joe Fortenbaugh of National Football Post is reporting that the Washington Redskins are still in discussions with the St. Louis Rams regarding a possible deal for the OU QB, based on an earlier report by Dan Graziano of AOL Fanhouse.
According to Graziano, sources have told him that the Redskins are still in the hunt for Bradford and the plan would be for Bradford to sit for a season behind Donovan NcNabb and learn the system of new ‘Skins head coach Mike Shanahan.
I’m still of the belief that the Rams will cling to the #1 pick and take Bradford; however, the rationale by the Redskins makes sense in terms of Jason Campbell being a non-entity on the roster. Fortenbaugh correctly points out that McNabb’s psyche may be affected by the possible drafting or trade for Bradford.
Besides, imagine the backlash by the Rams faithful if the Rams dealt the rights to Bradford and were faced with another season of Keith Null and Kyle Boller. Fortunately for me, I’m not a Rams fan, so I suppose that’s an non-issue. But still, I’d hate to be Rams management if the possibility of the team trading their #1 to Washington became a reality. It isn’t every day that the Rams get a chance to draft a potential franchise quarterback – something they haven’t had for quite some time.
